Au début des années 90, les bénéfices se trouvaient du côté du concept du taxi aérien, propulsé par une nouvelle génération de petits jets privés. L’ancien président de la compagnie aérienne American Airlines, Robert Crandall, et le fondateur de People Express, Donald Burr, soutinrent une entreprise du nom de Pogo qui ne prit jamais son envol. Une autre entreprise du même acabit, DayJet, sombra avant même d’avoir fait ses premiers pas. Le concept du taxi aérien ne décolla jamais.

Other near-term empty leg deals included Houston to Aspen on a Citation X seating eight for $14,000, not much less than an eight-seat Learjet 45XR for $18,945 with a normal charter. Skyjet, a broker that also offers empty legs had one this weekend from Nassau in the Bahamas to Ft. Lauderdale on a six-seat Phenom 300 for $3,000. Ft. Lauderdale to Key West and Tampa to Ft. Lauderdale, also on a Phenom 300, were being offered at $2,625 each. Chartering a similar aircraft for the same timings the regular way would run around $6,000.
I had the pleasure to work with Joel on a last minute trip needed to transport several professional athletes to an event. Joel was fast-acting and completely professional every step of the way. He sent constant updates to make sure our trip needs were met every step of the way. I would recommend Joel and Stratos to anybody looking to book private jets who also values professionalism and accountability.
We prefer to finalize our itinerary, plane and crew at least a week in advance. We did not get things completely final until the day of the actual flight. Secondly, we prefer to pay post-flight rather than pre-flight. You were able to make an exception in our case which was appreciated. Lastly, the quality of the catering service from STT was atrocious. It was inedible.

Chaque voyage en jet privé nécessite l'utilisation de l'infrastructure des transports aériens. Ainsi, les taxes aériennes sont comparables aux péages pour les voitures sur l'autoroute. Ils sont inévitables afin de pouvoir utiliser le trafic aérien. Le prix final dépend du poids de l'avion et de la longueur du trajet. Chaque pays a également ses propres variations de prix.

Stratos was so easy to work with. Kerri was so understanding of a couple itinerary changes we had to make to ensure a safe, smooth flight. As our charter ops director, I sincerely appreciate when our customers realize that our decisions are in their best interest. Though not always ideal, we always provide our best option given uncontrollable variables such as weather, winds, etc. Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job.Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated in return!
Joel Thomas:  Hi William!  Thanks for the opportunity to serve you and your wife.  We are always grateful when our clients take the time to offer feedback.  We reached out to Chief Pilot of the air carrier you flew with regarding the noise you mentioned and here is what they said:  "Frequently you'll hear noises that sound like that and its just the airplane expanding as altitude, temperature and humidity change.  Its actually very common."  Looking forward to working with you all again soon!  All my best
I met Joel, years ago, when he first introduced me to Stratos Jet Charters during its start-up phase.  I was always very impressed on their marketing and honesty, as a broker.  Joel is very genuine and caring when it comes to his customers or the operators that he works with.  I know that Stratos Jets will not sacrifice safety for anything.  I know that he likes to treat everyone like they are part of the Stratos Jet family.  The trip planning process, from quote request to trip planning to  invoice, is seamless – they’ve thought of everything and continue to be ahead of the trend in our industry with the way they do things.  They think of everything!  In my opinion, Stratos Jet Charters set the bar for aircraft brokerage and I will always continue to look forward to working with them.
Using a private jet rental to get to a holiday destination ensures the additional benefit of access to private terminals for faster security check-ins, ensuring that more time is spent enjoying the getaway instead of waiting in line. With its ability to access more locations around the world and enhanced potential for personalisation, chartering privately is the perfect way to travel for pleasure.
Il n’est pas le dernier à parader, surtout depuis qu’il est champion d’Europe avec l’équipe du Portugal. Il paraitrait que son jet vaut 19 millions d’euros. Une peccadille pour notre star du ballon rond qui ne fait même pas bouger son brushing d’un pouce au moment de sortir le carnet de chèques. Car la vedette est coutumière du fait, lui qui a déjà une collection de voitures à faire pâlir de jalousie un patron du CAC40.
Private charter flights offer a range of advantages for busy professionals, including time-efficiency. From quicker check-ins to faster transit times, private jet hire is the perfect way to fulfil multiple meetings in different cities, carry out several site visits in one day or simply have more of an opportunity to remain productive while travelling.
The Executive Car Service setup was a TOTAL disaster and almost ruined my trip. Chris Fink is awesome, but this man in Jersey was an absolute disgrace. Very disappointed with that firm.The crew stellar. Better than outstanding. I was blessed to have them transporting me on thus very important day trip.Chris' follow-up and communication was outstanding. He is Top-Notch.
We had quite a number of issues booking this trip, which resulted in add'l work and follow up for me. As broker these issues should have been handled / caught prior to making a proposal. I believe I had to sign 4 different revised quote sheets for this trip! Also the final signed sheet stated we would land in LFMD on the return leg. Hence we booked transportation for pick up at LFMD. However flight landed in LFMN. This caused add'l stress and expense for no reason. I have only now seen that the last itinerary link showed an arrival at LFMN - but I never opened this one since all previous ones, including the contract reconfirmation showed LFMD. As for the aircraft itself: it was one of the oldest ones I have ever flown. The door / separation to the toilet / luggage area was broken (not the lock but the entire frame!) and the toilet was not accessible due to a lot of "stuff" (amenities, water bottles, etc.) being thrown in / stored in the area. Overall cleanliness was not superb either. Finally, the catering we requested was not available / not complete. Breakfast (eggwhite and sausage!!) was cold and wet and the fruitplatter had molded grapes; no ice bucket, nor champagne glasses were present. On the return leg, fruitplatter was nice but again no ice bucket nor champagne glasses were present. As a matter of fact, the soft drink container was not even replenished w new ice!! So overall - yes, we flew from A to B but the service experience was disappointing.

Of course, the cheapest way to fly privately is to have a friend who invites you on their flight. Then there are the semi-private charters like JetSmarter, JetSuiteX and JetClass where you can buy a seat on a scheduled private jet and corporate shuttle flight sharing it with strangers, much like if you were on a commercial airline. You can buy tickets on these flights for under $200 and you do avoid those crowded main airport terminals. However, if you want to have the real deal experience, chartering your own private jet, you are looking at something between $5,000 and up to $20,000 per hour depending on the size of aircraft and routing.
Quand vous avez un partage de propriété dans un avion privé, vous partagez l’appareil et les frais fixes avec d’autres propriétaires. Cette option peut avoir une influence sur la disponibilité de l’appareil. Si vous souhaitez un autre type d’appareil pour votre vol, il y a souvent des frais supplémentaires auxquelles il faut en tenir compte. Comme vous achetez une action sur l’avion privé, vous payez seulement les frais de vol.

Le plus gros avantage dans l’affrètement d’un jet privé, c’est la personnalisation du vol. De plus, les jets privés offrent des sièges plus confortables, qui permettent de manger et de dormir agréablement. Les clients disposent aussi de la télévision, du Wi-Fi et d’un accès à internet. Les agents de bord sont également présents pour servir de délicieux repas, selon vos recommandations, et pour répondre à vos besoins pendant la durée de vol.
